Time to highlight the impact of light pollution on the night.
Night of Darkness
Countdown to Night of Darkness | Saturday, October 12, 2024
Step into the enchanting world of the night sky with us!

Once upon a time, the nocturnal landscape was a familiar sight to all, as natural as the sunlit world we know by day. But today, the night has become a rare commodity, with far-reaching consequences for both humanity and the natural world.

On Saturday, October 12, 2024, we invite you to join us for the 'Night of Darkness', an event dedicated to shedding light on the impact of light pollution and the vital importance of preserving the night.

Organised by astronomy and nature associations in collaboration with local authorities, the 'Night of Darkness' aims to safeguard nocturnal habitats while ensuring adequate and responsible lighting practices across Europe.

At the forefront of this initiative is Leve(n)de Nacht vzw, serving as the driving force behind the event and extending dark sky protection awareness beyond the borders of Belgium.

Join us in our mission to reclaim the night, making it a place of wonder once more – not just for us, but for all living creatures. Together, we can create darker nights with the use of sustainable lighting for everyone!
